Christmas troublemakers offered stay in special bed and breakfast

Tewkesbury Admag: Christmas troublemakers offered stay in special bed and breakfast Christmas troublemakers offered stay in special bed and breakfast

A UNIQUE getaway is being offered to anyone in Worcestershire planning to cause trouble during Christmas and the New Year.

The Lock’em Inn boasts a convenient location with lots of bars and within easy reach of pubs and clubs as well as criminal courts and never turns away anyone who has broken the law.

Facilities include CCTV in all rooms, sturdy locks for security, a free shuttle bus right to the door and confiscation of all personal belongings.

As a special offer this festive season, the unique hotel chain is offering a weekend deal allowing people to stay locked up safe until the criminal courts re open after the holidays.

The Lock’em Inn campaign has been launched by West Mercia and Warwickshire Police forces in a bid to stamp out crime and anti-social behaviour during the party season.

Thousands of leaflets have been distributed among pubs, clubs and other venues across the regions as part of the campaign, which is being coordinated by Chief Inspector Helena Bennett, who said she hoped the leaflet would make people think twice about their behaviour while out drinking during the festive period.

“Although the Lock’em Inn leaflets use humour to get our message across, we want everyone to know that violence, disorder and drunken anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated,” she said.

“We want to remind the people of Warwickshire and West Mercia that we are here to make sure they can enjoy the festive season and stay safe. Our custody blocks are one of the least desirable places to stay in the area over Christmas and we want to remind partygoers that they do not want to pay us a visit.

“We are not here to spoil people’s fun or to act as killjoys but we do want people to have a safe and enjoyable night out this Christmas without getting into any trouble.

“Our message to anyone tempted to cause trouble is ‘behave or get nicked’. If people ruin someone else’s Christmas by their drunken or violent behaviour, then their Christmas is likely to be ruined because they’ll be arrested, locked up and face probable prosecution”.

If only something like the same courtesy was offered to the county's homeless (most of whom are not listed in the official figures). If we can afford to lock up drunks and thugs we can afford to make homes for local people who need them.

"they’ll be arrested, locked up and face PROBABLE prosecution"

So before they've even started the campaign they are intimating that they may not prosecute. Not much of a threat is it?

This should say

"they’ll be arrested, locked up and WILL FACE prosecution"

You'll find that they need to convict to prosecute so the 'arrested' individual will have their case and the EVIDENCE passed to the CPS who decide if they go ahead...

Sounds good, cheaper than a travel lodge. Also, their shepards pie is pretty good. The sandwiches are alright too. I liked the room service, they bought me water and toilet roll ( not mixed together ) within 10mins or so of calling the buzzer. Overall my experience was a good 4/5* and I would recommend to a friend. Don't commit a serious crime though just keep urinating in public or something, that'll get you nicked eventually. If you want good grub and room service then commit crime!

And this is false advertising, there isn't any bars. It's a solid door and no window that you can see out of.

I'd also like to add, that the Lock'em Inn looks far more accommodating than all the other B & Bs and hotels in the City,

So therefore a police officer having to arrest someone for breaking the law isn't evidence enough?? He might as well just leave the trouble maker to get on with his antics eh, save the country some money.

That's what's wrong with this country.

Well this is a new account as I was banned a couple of days ago so you have probably read many of mine before without knowing. I like to be constructive! I've done many comments since yesterday, read a few and look out for mine. Quote my comments and I will reply even more

Well seeing as people are reporting my comments ( you sad freaks ) for stupid things like the word "tang" I will now resort to reporting comments with bad spelling and punctuation. WN admins job is about to get a lot harder, please do this also. They write boring, useless stories then remove comments which we leave over stupid things. Get reporting people..
